Designated Boundaries for Schools
The Calgary Catholic School District has designated boundaries for all schools. CCSD uses boundaries strategically to ensure optimal student populations that support viable programming across the district. It is the expectation that students will attend their designated school. Please be aware that school attendance boundaries can and do change to accommodate factors including changing demographic information, the opening or closing of a school, to relieve overcrowding in schools, etc.
Bishop Carroll High School is a program of choice school therfore, we do not have any designated boundaries within the Calgary Cathlic School District.
Understanding School Attendance Areas
We encourage parents and guardians who are considering a move to a new residence to review the designated attendance area for Catholic Schools in that community. All Calgary Catholic schools have attendance areas which identify the schools in each community where students are eligible to register. Students are expected to attend the designated school for their community unless they decide to register at a program of choice school such as French Immersion, or Fine Arts. For a list of programs, please click here. For these schools there are mandatory transportation costs based on residence of the family attending.
